25 Should Cover it... For Openers
Billion, that is.
Remember when you needed to borrow(or just talk them in to giving you some) money from your parents? You knew they wouldn't be happy, you already blew the money they gave you last week. So in order to get some cash and not inflame the situation you gave 'em a total low ball number. You always knew you could go back for more.
Well, once again, the Bush Administration can be compared to irresponsible teenagers.
"We ran a little short with the previous 192,000,000,000, so 25 more should cover it. 25 billion...Tops...Yeah, that should cover it...Tops."
My ass. Sorry, kid. Not this time.
